Artist Lynn Jaanz now uses Qoin for her Australian and international clients
One of Victoria’s most successful and well-known artists, Lynn Jaanz, has taken the plunge into digital currency for her Australian and international clients.
An artist for 25 years, Lynn Jaanz’s works sell all around the world, with major success in Italy, Hong Kong and Europe.
“Like everyone else, COVID-19 has disrupted my business and it has given me the chance to step back and see where I can innovate. I know a lot of people are now using digital currency and I have chosen Qoin (Eds; pronounced ‘coin’) because it is Australian owned and operated and it is specifically aimed at small to medium businesses,” Ms Jaanz said.
“I have come across a lot of businesspeople who now use digital currency but I didn’t want to rush in and so I did my homework. Qoin is the right fit for my business and the fact that it is based here in Australia is an added bonus.”
Ms Jaanz’s main gallery is at Oakley, south east of Melbourne and her focus is on impressionist abstract colourist works. “I expect other artists will follow me because we all have to be flexible today in how we do business. Digital currency is here to stay, and it is huge overseas which is where I sell a lot of my works.”
Over the space of six months more than 7,000 small business merchants, including many in Victoria, are now accepting Qoin, the newest digital currency, built on blockchain, that offers cashless transactions.
And now Victoria is being specifically approached following research undertaken by Qoin that shows Victorian businesses and merchants are keen to get involved in digital currencies.
Qoin Australia Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Barker says, “We have done our homework in Victoria and we have a dedicated sales team of independent agents that are in contact with Victorian businesses. The current economic climate off the back of COVID-19 has encouraged many businesspeople to open their eyes to new ways of doing business and that includes digital currency.”
Mr Barker says the time is ripe for digital currencies, like Qoin, as coronavirus has paved the way for small businesses to consider digital currencies to attract new customers and facilitate instore transactions.
